Long johns are sexy

And they keep you warm. Long Johns have been my secret weapon to getting through the winter months ever since my days as a downhill ski racer. And I wear them to this day. I have tried many kinds, here is my breakdown of my two go-to brands that work. They both fit snugly so they are perfect under any slim fit pants. If you want extra warmth – you should go with a sports brand of long johns meant for winter sports – they are often bulkier though. And not as cute.

Unqilo Heatech – these babies are warm and cheap. I own multiple pairs in multiple patterns and the fit is great. $15


2(x)ist Long Underwear. Not as warm as heat tech from Uniqlo but sexier marketing. A little bit higher price point. $22



Note: I have tried UnderArmour and found them no warmer and long in the leg. Calvin Klein long johns are overpriced and ill fitting.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
